[Testing Your Career Aptitude cont.]

page 20
In the matrix that follows, you will find all seven job/character types. Take your top score and locate it on the Dominant axis, and locate your second highest score on the Subordinate axis. Where the two cross is a range of jobs you might consider. When considering these, you should keep several things in mind:
  • First: don't write off a job because it sounds dull, or something. Always find out more about the job before you dismiss it, never write it off until you've found out about it.
  • Second: whether you get the job is readily available and what the competition is, as well as on your suitability and qualifications, but it also depends on a chance element. Somebody once said, that all the attempts to show that two and two make four always seem to forget to include the effect of a roaring southerly. If you are perfect for the job, the roaring southerly could still have an effect on you. Keep trying, the wind has to drop sometime.

The Matrix below does not contain all possible careers (obviously enough it can't) but all careers listed are possible. At least one graduate from Victoria has gone into each of the fields listed here in the past five years. The classification of careers in a matrix like this involves a lot of subjective judgement and judgements change according to perspective. The final evaluation and judgement is yours and its validity will depend on how much you find out for yourself.

Tom should bear in mind that in meat areas, such tertiary qualifications can be a help in furthering a career, but in almost all but a very few cases the qualification cannot be said to be absolutely eassential. You should look into it carefully before deciding on further study. and you should check all possible sources for further information on possible careers, and allied fields, before you make a decision.
